Grigorije Rasputin was born on January 10, 1869 in Siberia. Not much is known about his childhood. It is known that he had a sister Maria and a brother Dimitrije. His parents were farmers. Maria drowned in the lake due to an epileptic seizure, and Dimitrije was no better off. Playing with Grigorije by the lake, Dimitrije fell into the water and regardless of the fact that Rasputin immediately jumped to save him, a passer-by saved both of them from certain death. Dimitrije soon dies of pneumonia. The fact that he gave the names of his deceased sister and brother to his children shows how much trace these events left on him. Even in his early childhood, he expressed his passion for recognizing thieves and deceivers. Gregory was a controversial figure. Some considered him a healer, a holy man, and a psychic, while others accused him of conspiring against the Romans and aiding their king.
When he turned 18, Gregory stayed in the Verkoturje monastery for three months. His stay in the monastery turned him towards the life of a religious mystic. He is believed to have been associated with the banned Christian sect of Klisti. Doubts about his involvement in this sect followed him for the rest of his life. Tsar Nicholas II ordered the case to be investigated, but did not remove Rasputin from the court. On the contrary, he accused his interior minister of failing to control the press.
In 1889, Rasputin married Praskov Fyodorovna Dubrovin. In that marriage he had three children: Dmitri, Maria and Varvara. In 1901, he traveled to Greece and Jerusalem. Two years later he came to St. Petersburg, where he later became known as the ‘old man’ (holy man), prophet and healer. In 1905, the Empress asked for Raspucin's help. Her son Alexei was suffering from hemophilia and had been bleeding for days. The Empress heard of Rasputin's healing powers and decided to turn to him. It was believed that Raspucin healed with prayer. Skeptics have tried to refute Rapucin's claim, possessing powers of this kind, but nothing has ever been proven in their favor.
From his safe position, which was in favor of the empress, Raspucin was free to do what he wanted. However, his inappropriate behavior quickly damaged his reputation among the nobles.
This animosity also led to the assassination attempt that took place just before the beginning of the First World War.
When the war began, Rasputin continued to enjoy the favor of the royal family. As things went up in Russia, Rasputin and the Empress convinced Tsar Nicholas II that he should travel personally to the front line and command the army.
This decision eventually led to the revolution in Russia that gave birth to the Soviet Union.
During those years, without the influence of the emperor to stop them, members of the nobility began to conspire for another assassination. They were determined not to fail.
On the night of December 17, 1916, they took their step.
He may not have had nine lives, like a cat, but his enemies duly struggled as they killed him. Rasputin was invited to dinner with a nobleman. It is served with cyanide tea, in which the amount of poison was enough to kill five people. When it seemed to have no effect on him, his host shot him at close range. That was not enough for him to die either, and Raspucin fled. He reached the yard when he was shot once more and ushered inside. They thought the act was done, but when the body moved again, they shot him once more ... only this time, they shot him in the head.
After that, they tried to burn the body ...
According to the legend, Rasputin's body tried to sit after they lit a fire. Needless to say, the observers were horrified. However, what happened is completely normal. When exposed to flames, tendons are tense and then relax. Tendons are cut before cremation for that very reason.
Near St. Petersburg, in the famous Imperial Village, lives ethnologist Fyodor Morozov, who talks about how the mysteries outlived Rasputin. He states that he tried several times to photograph the place where this mystic was originally buried, however, for some reason unknown to him, not a single photograph was able to develop. He also tells about other mysterious events related to the former man of the Romanov dynasty, even 9 decades after his death.
ORGIES AND WHIPS
Rasputin often whipped himself to blood, all for the sake of "cleansing" his sins, and he imposed that on other followers as well. And in this way, he imposed some other cruel methods of purification of sins on 'sinners'.
And the sinners who asked him to convert them to the "true faith" and who wanted "purification", had a special method: real love violence, which often turned into real orgies until dawn. Many of these "novices" have long, and some for life, bore traces of Rasputin's treatment of them.
That this is not a fabrication is best confirmed by the numerous diaries of members of the nobility who were its "novices", and often wrote about all this with enthusiasm. Even parts of the diaries of many noblewomen at the imperial court abound in these descriptions. Apparently, this was, in part, the reason for Rasputin's great influence on the nobility - and especially on noblewomen. It was noted that hundreds of his followers came before his hermitage and that for many that alone was enough to heal and purify them.
